Forever Family

  Forever Family: Meet Paul and Elmer

Our hope is that one day soon Paul will be able to put up a tent in the backyard, roast marshmallows see his kid brother Elmer in the sleeping bag next to him and know they are safe, loved, and together once and for all.

Forever Family: Meet Iradessa

This sweet little girl's favorite activity each month is when she gets together with her siblings.

Forever Family: Meet Spirit

In this week's Forever Family segment I went on a lake adventure with Spirit and loved taking with someone so selfless, hard-working, and who strives to put her best foot forward.

Forever Family: Meet Destiny

Destiny is such a strong and smart young lady!  She's been through a lot, which goes without saying almost when talking about any child without a family.

Forever Family: Let Devon melt your heart

This week we featured a precious young boy, Devon!  He is only 4 years old and already he knows his ABCs, how to ride his bike and how to make everyone in a room burst-out laughing!

Forever Family: Meet Nyema

This was a special week for me because I love music so much and thankfully so does Nyema, who is this week's Forever Family child hoping for her very own family one day soon.

Forever Family: Jamario

See and hear his story here and see if you might find it in your heart to make them a part of your forever family.

Forever Family: La Duffy

La Duffy is a special needs child who is nonverbal, but none of that can mask his heart and soul which is clearly filled with love and joy.

Forever Family: Sunniyah

Sunniyah has a sparkling personality, bright mind and nothing shines brighter in her life than her two siblings, who she loves dearly.

Forever Family: Meet Yedaiah

In this week's Forever Family segment, we meet Yedaiah who is a lovely young lady!  With some kids you can tell immediately they would instantly add tons of fun to any household.

  Forever Family: Meet Tyler

Our fans and viewers of WBTV have been asking about the children we feature and when we will show a success story. No question, this process does take time and for good reason, everyone wants to make sure a perfect match is found between the child and their new family.

Forever Family: Meet Gjizelle

This adorable 7-year-old exudes and radiates love! She is a genuinely happy child who loves to play indoors and outside. And be ready to snuggle with her during quiet time!

Forever Family: Jayden

Of course if you watch this video clip, you'll realize there isn't a mean bone in his adorable body!

Forever Family: Tianza

Don't procrastinate!  Tianza is one of the happiest people I have ever met, and I am sure you will agree!

Forever Family: Meet Chance and Chase

You better not waste any time picking up the phone this week, because we have double the fun with two young twin boys who are overflowing with personality! This set of twins had us laughing non-stop and I wasn't the only one!

Forever Family: Meet Freddys

I hope you had a chance to see our Forever Family feature this week, if not, now's your chance.  This young man's name is Freddys (not a typo).  Oh believe me, he is full of energy, life and such a positive outlook. He has plenty of confidence in himself despite the fact I did everything possible to take him down on the go-cart track!  We had a blast at Frankie's Fun Park and enjoyed all kinds of fun and games.

Forever Family: Meet C.J.

I had a blast getting to know him and I hope you will too, take a look at the video!

Forever Family: Meet Jordan

He probably wouldn't want me to say this, but Jordan is as endearing and charming a young man you'll meet.

Forever Family: Meet Glenn

Please say hello to Glenn, he is young and energetic and he is looking for a family that is outgoing and playful, a family that will support his dreams, and allow him to stay in touch with his biological sister.

Forever Family: Meet Adrianna

Please take a minute and learn about Adrianna.  You'll see her interests go far deeper than sports. She's already targeting a PhD for her academic goals.

  Forever Family: Meet Chris

I had a chance to hang out with Chris at the exact same time a significant snow was pelting the Greensboro area back in early December. Needless to say, we took advantage of nature's playground.

Forever Family: Meet Nyema

My last venture with children waiting for a family to adopt them was really special.  I love music and getting a chance to team up with Grammy nominated Christian recording artist, Jamie Grace, to bring a little light into Nyema's day was such a perfect combination.

Forever Family: Meet Michael

This young man would dearly benefit from a family who would adopt him and give him the love and support he so richly deserves.

Forever Family: Meet Haley

Haley is a fantastic artist, she loves to draw, and she has so many more amazing qualities too! She likes caring for younger children  and most importantly, she just has a huge heart!

Forever Family: Meet Adrianna

She longs to have a home to call her own, and I think any family would be lucky to have her.

Forever Family: Meet Bethany

Bethany is a girl who is still so young and already she is an inspiration to everyone around her.

Forever Family: Meet William

I can't wait for you to meet William on our Forever Family segment, he not only likes sunshine he IS sunshine! He has an incredible smile!

Forever Family: Meet Shy and Khy

I got to tell you, this dynamic duo of twin boys made me feel 20 years younger! They're twice as cute and double the fun!
